We stayed only 2 nights, excellent location to go an explore, the underground is just 2 minutes away. Also there are nice shops and restaurants and bar nearby. Try to get a room on a high floor. Staff also very friendly. If you want to use the swimming pool you need to wear a swimming cap.

The room is not very big, but very clean and pretty cozy. HBO channel is good, but for some reason I can only see a few channel, and I was watching the same channel for a week.

I have been staying in this service apartment for many trips (stretch of 5 to 8 days) and it has never fail to impress me with their high level of service standards from their staff.

I stayed at Somerset XuHui for ten days over Xmas/NewYear 2015 in a 1 Br Executive Suite. I had earlier requested to be allocated a high floor apartment and Somerset responded by putting me in suite no. 2503 which was very satisfactory. (Thanks Somerset).

I would stay here over a hotel any day. Firstly, it feels like a much safer place, and although I'm Chinese (Canadian) and pretty used to the hustle and bustle of China, as a traveler it's nice to walk through a private driveway into a quieter neighbourhood. Beautiful front lobby area. Modern, has a nice sitting space and a coffee... More

Staying in Former French Concession

Neighborhood Profile
Former French Concession
While there are technical borders to the area formerly governed by the French in Shanghai, the "French Concession" of today is an amorphous neighborhood that is a favorite of the city's foreign residents. While it is mostly within the Xuhui district, residents will sometimes include parts of Jing'an and Luwan in their mental maps of the Former French Concession. The area seems frozen in time, characterized by quiet, tree-lined avenues, French-style villas, interesting boutiques, lively bars and quaint cafes that are not typical of China. All of these mix and mingle with local life as Chinese markets and lanehouse communities are peppered throughout. Denizens of the Former French Concession can spectate a mahjong game on the street or get their bike checked at a tiny bike repair store on the way to their refurbished apartment tucked away among Chinese family homes.
